I found out i had pcos when we were trying to have baby number 2, and nothing was happening
I went to the dr and she did some tests and told me i had pcos.
(I knew i had cysts, as they found a few when on the ultrasounds from my son a few years earlier, but didn't think anything of them)
At that time i weighed 108kgs! the dr said if i lost weight it MAY increase my chances but pcos sufferers generally have infertility probs. I managed to drop down to 98kgs and found out i was pregnant with DD!
Thankfully i lost weight still through the pregnancy and she was still healthy. But of course i managed to put it all back on and then some. Mainly due to a bit of PND that i didn't really know i had. But have since got help for that and i feel better & more motivated to keep going!
A couple of months ago my dr suggested i try metformin, and it havent had any probs with it so far, however i havent been taking it reguarly
I forget often and the tablets are huge! i have a hard time getting them down because im a sook lol But i have managed to behave the last few days and remember and get them down. Then, a few weeks ago i went for some more tests and the dr told me i have type 2 diabetes, mainly due to the pcos. It wont go away but it can be managaged by diet and exercise and that has alos hepled me get my butt back into gear, i definately done want any of these probs to get any worse.
sorry for that long post!
